CEDARBURG, Wis. - Voters casting ballots in the Republican primary for Wisconsin's lone open congressional seat say familiarity played a big role in their choices.
Three state lawmakers are vying for the chance to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Tom Petri in the 6th District in the east-central part of the state.
Cedarburg Dr. Jason Geiger said Tuesday that he voted for state Sen. Glenn Grothman after meeting him in person. Geiger says Grothman's strong family values and opposition to abortion were important to him.
Adolph Klinski also lives in Cedarburg. The retiree says he voted for state Rep. Duey Stroebel because Stroebel comes from the area, and Klinski didn't know the third lawmaker in the race, state Sen. Joe Leibham.
